protect ourselves as a country from future terrorist attacks without
restricting the rights of individuals, particularly those who belong to
racial and ethnic groups under special scrutiny since 9/11? Prof. Tom Ginsburg (Law): international and comparative responses to terrorism; domestic civil liberties issues.
Prof. Tom Huang (Electrical and Computer Engineering): intelligent computers; face visualization
Prof. Sheldon Jacobson (Mechanical and Industrial Engineering): aviation security strategies
Prof. Mark Leff (History): national security hysteria of the 1950s; crises of tolerance
Prof. Todd Shaw (Political Science): African-American politics and ideology; public policy.
